Andrew Wilkins, Head of Waste Services, Aylesbury Vale District Council:

 “We, like many authorities, are undergoing a process of change and we need to be able to change our fleet in line with any future changes to our waste collection service.  We believe in open and honest discussion and SFS provide that.  The contract is not only extremely competitive with very favourable lease arrangements, but also gives us the ability to change vehicles before the end of term of the contract.”

"We value SFS knowledge and expertise in helping us to select, specify and maintain our fleet of vehicles.  Thanks to our partnership with SFS we have achieved a 100% success rate on M.O.T's, safeguarded our Operator Licence and improved the efficiency of our service to provide better value for money to our residents."
